My 1st Bloggerversary! ... 10 Random Facts :o)

I've been blogging now for one whole year thanks to my lovely sister, who forced me to start ... yes  forced!

If I remember correctly, I was umming and arring, and saying such things as, "I just don't get why anyone would ever want to blog."   

(don't judge me, I didn't know!)

Well, my sister competely disregarded my protests and set up this blog for me, saying, "Just shut up and do as you're told, you'll love it!"

... and of course she was right  :o)

So here I am a year later, and to celebrate I thought I'd give 10 random facts about myself.

Here goes ...


1.  I am exactly the same weight now as I was when I was 21
( I was 9 months pregnant then, but for a moment, I bet you were impressed)

2.  I just LOVE animals, and dog watching makes me genuinely happy.

3.  When I was little I could jump in the air and land in the splits, bend my body all over the place and run really fast ... aah memories.

4.  I've recently developed a jowl, yes just the one! ... life can be cruel.

5.  I used to be painfully shy.

6.  I'm happiest surrounded by trees and nature.

7.  I am enjoying growing older ... even with the singular jowl.

8.  I've got a large head, short shins and a long neck ... it's not funny.

9.  I feel thankful and lucky every day to have my family.

10.  I can recite the alphabet in Chinese.

Okay,  that one's not true,  but I can't think of anything else and the pressure was getting to me!

Seriously though, to anyone who has followed, visited or ever taken the time to leave a comment


THANK YOU  xxxxxx

Happy Bloggerversary to you (man, that's hard to write, let alone say).
Too bad you don't have six toes though. You could get on TV. Stranger things have happened. If you doubt that, think "The Jersey Shore."

Susannah said...

See, I knew you'd love it! :-)

Numbers 4 and 7 made me laugh out loud!

And I can vouch for number 3, you were a fast little bugger! LOL

Number 8, I would dispute the long neck? but back you up on the other two. :-)

Happy bloggerversary! Here's to many, many more. x

Deborah said...

Thank you Al, you almost make me wish I did! LOL :o) x


Su, you certainly did, THANK YOU xxx
... but disputing my long neck?
the only 'good one' of the three ... ooh you are harsh! LOL

jabblog said...

I like your random facts:-)
A large head on a long neck is good! I've got a small head on a long neck, which isn't;-/ (People call me pinhead)
I've never been able to do the splits so I'm really envious.
Happy bloggerversary and many more years to come, I hope, and well done to Susannah for involving you.

Deborah said...

Thank you jabblog x :o)
... it's making me laugh thinking of varying head sizes on long necks LOL

That gentleman's lady said...

You're right -- I was VERY impressed :)

That Janie Girl said...

Congratulations! Well done for dealing with n°5 and, I agree with That Janie Girl, never admit to n° 7!

Deborah said...

Selma said...

I'm really glad you're blogging. You are one of the nicest, funniest, warmest people I know.

Age is a cruel but faintly humorous thing. My left knee creaks all the time now. It's like an old floorboard. I'm hoping to learn how to change the pitch on the creaks so I can use my knee for a laugh at parties. If I can master it I might even get on Australia's Got Talent. Haha.

My boggerversary is today. 4 years. I can't quite believe it. I have really enjoyed it. I hope that you have too. Wishing you many, many more happy blogging years!!!

Deborah said...

Oh Selma, thank you so much for that lovely, lovely comment ... I feel the same way about you! :o) xxx

Friko said...

well, there you are then. Blogging is fun and a very great help at times.

congratulations and many happy returns.

I also read your tribute to your sister; a fine pair you are.

Deborah said...

Yes it can be Friko, thank you for stopping by x :o)

Lydia said...

Happy Bloggerversary...one year is a big accomplishment, given the startling percentage of people who never make it to a year (I don't have the figure at hand but trust me it is startling).

Your random facts were delightful, although I have a strong feeling you judge yourself harshly. :)

Deborah said...

Thank you Lydia :o) xxx

Linda said...

I'm a little behind in my commenting, but I want to wish you a belated happy bloggerversary. The random facts were interesting...and funny. :) Looking forward to more posts in the coming year.

Deborah said...

Thank you Linda xx :o)

Tina said...
